Line Leader

26 Oct

The Lady had just two simple requests:

“Can you knit me something next?” and “Can it be pink?”

Yes, my lady. Yes.

As we were blocking the dress, which incidentally is Ella’s favorite part of the process because she requests to put all the pins in, she kept asking if I was sure her dress would be dry by Monday.  The day she was assigned to be the line leader at preschool.  Oh how she loves just that little bit of responsibility.  She eats it up.  She was off her rocker thrilled that it ended up being fire drill day, and she got to be the line leader two extra times that day.  All in the dress.  The pink dress.

    Such a wonderful color – so glad to see her enthusiasm for helping you and wearing it! I like the simple lines of the pattern – I noticed on Ravelry you mentioned that you like kfb better. I’m still new to learning increase/decrease stitches so this is good to know. I have done M1 and I agree – not the best increase. I suppose it depends upon the pattern (and yarn).

      I tried the M1 increases while I was reading Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac. (She kept raving about this increase) This yarn seemed to show stitch definition very well and I think it left holes in the knitting. I actually went back and closed up the holes with a needle and thread in a few places because I felt they were too visible (to me).

      Thank you for the recommendations. I actually finished Cranford this week. DId you watch Emma? That was one my absolute favorites!
